With rising global temperatures, melting polar ice caps, and more extreme weather patterns, it is essential to have reliable data about the state of our oceans and fresh water sources. Remote sensing and Earth observation technologies can provide us with an inside look at these vital resources.
With satellite imagery, we can track extreme weather events and detect changes in coloration or texture to identify contamination.
"Climate change has caused substantial damages, and increasingly irreversible losses, in terrestrial,
freshwater and coastal and open ocean marine ecosystems."
- IPCC Report 2022
Remote sensing & Earth observation technologies provide invaluable insights into how climate change is affecting our access to clean fresh water sources and healthy marine ecosystems around the world. By providing detailed measurements on environmental conditions they allow us to better understand what is happening in our environment so that we can take steps towards protecting it for generations to come.
AI is playing an increasingly important role in monitoring our fresh water sources as well. By using AI-powered algorithms, researchers are able to more quickly analyze data from satellite imagery and detect changes in water quality before they become visible with the naked eye. This allows us to take proactive steps towards preserving our freshwater resources before they reach critical levels of contamination or degradation.
As climate change continues its destructive path through the world’s ecosystems it is ever more important that we make use of these powerful tools for understanding our environment so that we may continue enjoying its bounty for years to come.
